Chelsea are looking to move on from their search for a new striker with Erling Haaland appear to hard to land, with Harry Kane taking on as the new top target.

The rivalry between the club and Tottenham would make this deal seem impossible but there has been encouragement over a potential swap deal.

According to The Athletic, Tammy Abraham could be used as a makeweight in a deal that would see Kane move from north London to west

Spurs chief Daniel Levy is battling to keep hold of the England international amid interest from Manchester City, too.

But Kane remains keen on leaving, which would mean Tottenham will have to make the best out of a bad situation – and Abraham has been tipped as a potential replacement.

That would give the Blues a boost as they can use the forward during their negotiations – though a hefty sum of cash will also be expected

 

That has wrangled with Kane, leading to widespread speculation he could be playing his football elsewhere next season.

Indeed, a recent report revealed the fears his England teammates hold over the possibility he may refuse to show up at Tottenham training.

Very few clubs have the financial might to prise Kane away from Tottenham. If his transfer valuation wasn’t already high enough to deter potential suitors, negotiating with Levy would be the final straw.

Nevertheless, one club interested in pulling off the coup is Man City. Reports in June stated the club had made a £100m bid to land the goal machine.

The news trail went cold as Euro 2020 drew everyone’s attention. However, the Athletic have now delivered an update that has thrust the saga back atop the agenda.

But instead of Man City leading the way, they cite industry sources that claim Chelsea can offer a more ‘appealing’ package to twist Tottenham’s arm

One factor behind that statement stems from the type of player each side is willing to include as a makeweight.

Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez were all touted as bargaining chips at one time. Jesus is capable of being a direct replacement for Kane. Though Pep Guardiola has rarely utilised the Brazilian in a central position at City.

Furthermore, each of that quintet are on significantly higher wages than the player the Athletic state Chelsea would offer – Tammy Abraham.

Abraham would slot straight into the Spurs frontline and has shown he will score goals when afforded a consistent run in the starting eleven. His lower salary would also ensure Tottenham would not have a problem fitting him in to their wage structure

 

Furthermore, reports have indicated Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to free up a huge lump sum to seal a major striker acquisition.

Erling Haaland is believed to be their number one target. But with Jadon Sancho about to depart, Dortmund will be doubly determined to retain the Norwegian.

As such, that cash could go towards a deal for Kane. A colossal bid combined with Abraham’s inclusion could seemingly be enough to convince Levy to sell.
